LOCAL PHYSICIANS ORGANIZE. ti Meeting Was Held at Northern Last fl Night-Banquet Followed. o The Yellowstone Valley Medical as- a sociation is the name of the organiza tion that was brought to life in this city last night, at a meeting held at ,the Norhern hotel. Doctor McCormick, the lecturer from the National association, failed to arrive, but that fact had no par ticular bearing on the carrying out of the original plans of the meeting. It convened at 8 o'clock and was presid ed over by Doctor Donald Campbell of Butte, president of the State assoolia tion. A significant fact concerning the personnel of the meeting was that epvery doctor in the city was present and took an active part in the work of organization. After plans had been discussed and a line of procedure ,had been agreed upon the association was organized and the following officers were elected: President, Doctor H. E. Armstrong; vice president, Doctor J. H. Rinehart; secretary, Doctor C. F. Watkins; treasurer, Doctor Carl Schulin. The following gentlemen were elected to compose the first board of directors for the new associa tion: Doctors Armstrong, Tuttle, Chapple, Seaman and Weitman. Immediately after the close of the meeting the doctors sat down to an elaborate banquet that was served in the main dining room of the Northern. The menu consisted of six courses, and comprised everything that even a doctor might wish for. The service, also, was as near perfect as it well could be, and the decorations were or nate. Large wreaths of sweet peas and pansies were placed at either end of the table from which were extended ropes of ferns and smilax to the chan delier over the center of the board. *The ropes were entwined with asters and sweet peas, and a large center boquet of asters ornamented the table. T hose present were Doctors H. E. i Armstrong, Carl 'Schulin, J. H. Rine hart, Kelley, Andrew Clark, Portus t Baxter, T. D. Tuttle, Jiames Chapple, Stokes, Empey, Wietman, Seaman, f Lindsey and Watkins of Billings, Sud duth of Lavina, Campbell of Butte and Cogswell of Livingston. WRESTLING MATCH WAS GOOD. Charles Ross of Butte Defeated by Tom Davis of England. From Thursday's Daily. A large crowd, composed principally of the best people of the city, witness ed the wrestling match at the Mon arch Carnival company's show grounds last night, between Tom Da vis, champion of England, and Charles Ross of Butte. Ross and Davis wrestle,l at Living ston two weeks ago and Davis was de feated. In the last round he was put down and out for six minutes, it is mtated. He was not satisfied with the bout and still believing that he could throw Davis he followed him here and made another match. The contest was one of physical giants and was devoid of the brutality that character izes prize fights, altogether.. Mr. Bell, a stranger n the city, acted as referee, and the first round lasted 18 minutes. Davis' arnu was hurt in the bout, but after a struggle that was ex citing he succeeded in putting the Butte man's shroulders on the mat. The second round lasted but four min utes and Ross was again thrown. Ross is the much heavier man, but what Davis lacks in weight he makes up in skill and muscle. There are many other attractions offered by the Monarch company that are not "fakes" by any means. Many of them are worth much more than the admssion fee that is charged. The matter of raising the license of the company has been dropped; ALL OVER THE STATE The annual roundup of horses and cattle on the Flathead reservation is in progress. W. J. Bell was arrested at Hamilton a few days ago on the charge of byv ing dynamited sheep camps on the Bitter Root stock farm last spring. Last Tuesday Havre had its regular weekly fire. The amount of damage done is estimated at about $5,000. As evidence of hose cutting was obtained, it caused the belief that the blaze was of incendiary origin. Judge Webster of Missoula has ov erruled the motion for an arrest of judgment in the case of F. K. W. Bees kove and will pronounce sentence up on the defendant next 'Saturday. A new trial will be asked and if this is denied an 'appeal will be taken to the ,supreme court. Elliston's new Presbyterian church was dedicated last Sunday. In re sponse to an appeal by the 'pastor the congregation in a few minutes had subscribed the -sum of $147, which re mained unpaid on the sacred structure. In addition a small sum was raised as a special fund for a pulpit. Charles Robinson, a Great Northern brakeman, was run over by 'a freight train at Clancy and instantly killed. He was switchipg and stumbled. Be fore he could arise the train was up on him. Robinson was the support of a wife and two small children and his aged mother. The 'body was sent to Raymond, Neb., for burial. His fel low trainmen made up a purse to de fray the cost of the funeral. James F. Barnes, the Butte murder er, whose crime led to an attempted lynching, has been taken from the Anaconda jail and locked up at Butte, 'where he was arraigned a few days -ago. He pleaded not guilty and asked for a change of venue. It has been practically agreed that his case shal ta be sent to some other county, as it is na believed an impartial jury cannot be ne secured to try him at Butte. gr Within a few days the big stack of er the Clark smelter at Butte will 'be th completed. The chimney will lie 354 m feet high, from the ground up, and is (c intended to carry off the sulphur a fumes and volatilized arsenic and oth- th er gasses liberated by the process of smelting. The stack will cost $30,000 and is the tallest in the world built of concrete. Sixty-five tons of T steel H and 1,600 barrels of cement were re quired in its construction. Ambrose Brusear, a sheepherder, it committed to the insane asylum from ff Livingston, escaped from that- ins'titu- w tion some days ago and reappeared at it 'his former home. He said he was perfectly sane and had come back to c, look after some money and other busi- f ness matters. In spite of the fact that he really did have several hun dred dollars on deposit in one of the h 'banks and talked rationally on all sub- s jects, he was arrested and returned to T the asylum. a Doctor D. K. Pearsons of Chicago, 'b noted for his philanthropy, has given t $25,000 'to the Montana College and f School of Manual Arts, located at Deer Lodge. Negotiations under which 1 the endownment was pending were I completed a few days ago. The gift r was tendered conditional upon the trustees raising a like amount. This q has 'been practically secured and v transfer of Doctor Pearsons' money V has been ordered. This, last contri- i Ibution makes $365,000 given by the same gentleman to small colleges this year. John Sandvig, a young rancher of Redstone, is nursing a bullet hole in his arm and Stub Mann, who put it there, has one in his side. Mann was ,the aggressor and after having shot S'andvig jumped behind a board par tition for protection. Sandvig fired thrqugh it and hit Mann. The shoot ing was the result of a robbery. Mann and another fellow are said to have broken into Sandvig's house and rob 'bed his trunk. The owner followed them to the La Porte ranch and de manded return of his property, when troubl4 ensued. Public sympathy is with Sandvig, who, at last accounts, had not yet been arrested. Judge Whitson of the United States district court at Helena has rendered a decision holding that in the case of a Chinaman ordered deported where the pilea is that the subject of the order is a native or this country it is incumbent upon the government to prove the contrary. The ruling was made a few days ago in an action in . which Yung She Fun was defendant. .

St. Cloud, Minn., Sept. 21-Stranded c in a strange town, lacking $2 of the l fare to Indiana, where his little child was dying, yet with plenty of money t in 'the bank at home, was the sad plight of a, well-dressed man who ac- f costed a St. Cloud merchant for in formation. The stranger, James Houghton, was on his way from Mutte, Mont., to his home at Monticello, Ind., where his seven-year-old child lay dying or dead. Tired from a long journey he fell asleep on the train and was awakened by the 'brakeman's cry of what he ,thought to be 'St. Paul, but which he found, upon alighting, to be St. Cloud. The train had pulled away before he discovered his mistake, and, though he 'made a valiant effort to catch the real platform, he failed. Stepping to the ticket office, he re quested a ticket to Chicago, where he was to meet his 'brother, but found, when it came to paying for the prec ious strip, that he lacked $2 of the re 3 quired amount. He telegraphed to 5 Chicago for money, but when the an swer came the banks were closed and an order must be identified. In the deepest anxiety as to the condition of "t his child, he accosted one of the busi ness men, telling him of his mistake at and the loss of time it had already cost him. d The cashier of the bank was sent t for and money was advanced to Mr. n Houghton, who left on the early morn o ing train, not knowing but what the loss of 12 hours here might have pre d vented him from seeing his child be fore it died. DEATH OF TORTURE. Murderer Strangled by Rope Through Alleged Carelessness. s Walla Walla, Wash., Sept. 21. d Through the alleged gross careless f ness of some employe of the Washing ton state penitentiary, Frank Pas 1e quale, hanged last Friday morning,' died a death of strangulation because to the rope from which he dangled was astoo long and was not properly adjust in ed. When the trap was sprung by t. Warden Kees, Pasquale's feet struck r- the ground. The rope was then haul id ed up a short distance and a knot tied te in it. Pasquale kicked and gasped for breath for fully 35 minutes, it is charged, before death mercifully put an end to his torture. The Italian thus paid the penalty not prescrbed by law, for the murder of Charles Gray at Tacoma in 1904. When Pasquale ascended the ecaf fold at 5:30 Friday morning it was be lieved all was in readiness and that the execution would be a matter of seconds rather than minutes. The trap was sprung at exactly 5:34 o'clock, and then the sickening dis covery was made that the rope from which the gasping and struggling pris oner hung was too long. The attending physician denies that the man was strangled to death, 'but many of the spectators, are firmly of the belief that Pasquale's death was unnecessarily prolonged and his suf fering needlessly intensified as a re sult of the alleged carelessness of some one.

Barfield, convicted in Lauderdale county of manslaughter and sentenc ed to serve one year in prison, arriv ed in Nashville yesterday and went at once to the penitentiary.
